Jeffrey Wolin @ UK's Robert C. May Lecture Series; Friday, November 7

The Robert C. May Lecture Series continues next week (Friday, 11/7/08) as Jeffrey Wolin speaks in the Worsham Theatre in the student center at 4:00 PM. If you're interested in photography, the May lectures are an invaluable opportunity to hear from world-renowned photographers and see their work first hand in the UK Art Museum.

"Wolin, a professor of photography at Indiana University examines the Vietnam War and the continuing effect on its veterans by combining images and texts to create narrative portraits. Collected in the book Inconvenient Stories: Portraits of Vietnam War Veterans, his work tells the often harrowing stories of lives still disrupted by post traumatic stress disorder. Since the book was published in 2005, he has continued the project with Vietnamese veterans, whose perspectives, not surprisingly, are quite different than their American counterparts," UK Art Museum Robert C.
